Struggling to put together a package for Argentina’s international community, Barcelona is currently facing the possibility of losing out on a contract for Inter Milan’s Lautaro Martinez this summer.
Martinez, who was previously linked to Real Madrid and Manchester City has a €111 m (£97.1 m) release clause in his new contract at San Siro, although it is understood that the Spanish champions will fail to afford the buy-out fee due to the financial effect of the coronavirus.
However, the report argues that the Italians have not yet been happy with any package offered by the Catalan giants, indicating that they will fail to sign the center this summer.
Quique Setien offered Inter the option of first-team players, and tried to reduce the expenses of the deal, according to Sky Sport Italia.
The new 22-year-old agreement in San Siro will continue until June 2023. He scored 16 times in 31 appearances for Antonio Conte during the 2019-20 campaign.
